The BIO5 Institute at the University of Arizona is pleased to announce the 2014 Tucson Winter Institute in Plant Breeding, to be held the week of January 6th-10th, 2014. The goal of the Institute is to offer state-of-the-art instruction and training in modern tools in plant breeding, be they statistical, molecular, or computational.
This year's Institute is comprised of the following four Modules:
Monday - Wednesday (12:00pm) January 6th - 8th, 2014
Module 1: Introduction to Plant Quantitative Genetics (Walsh/Gore/Gutierrez)
Module 2: Introduction to Plant Genomics (Wing)
Wednesday (1:30pm) - Friday January 8th - 10th, 2014
Module 3: Advanced statistical plant breeding (Walsh/Gore/Gutierrez)
Module 4: Bioinformatics for breeders (Goff/Ragot)
Note that the Institute is the week prior to PAG in nearby San Diego (a 60 minute plane flight from Tucson), so think about including the Institute in your travel plans if you are heading to PAG.
